About Kimi Du
Game Designer & Content Creator
I'm currently pursuing a Master of Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon University. I have a background of the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Digital Arts and Sciences from the University of Florida. I create 2D and 3D art, time-based media, video games, and software design. I've worked and participated in several different roles and industries related to digital media.
I devote myself to animal welfare and environmental protection and try to incorporate my research and thoughts into my art and design.
